03/12/15 277 W, 2 I - + 4 - 4 Exploring Fort Bragg's Fire Stations


Let's take a virtual tour of Fort Bragg's fire stations, courtesy of Bing Maps and official photos posted to the post's web site. But, wait, Batman! What's that last structure shown? That's Ranger Station 2 on the far west side of the military reservation. Historic structure that was built in 1937. Has been repurposed as Fire Station 8 for a four-person engine company. Engine 7, Tanker 81, and Crash 83 will be housed at the location.

The one-story building has been refurbished as living quarters. Two apparatus buildings have been added, a two-bay metal building beside the ranger station for the engine and tanker and a second metal building across the road for the crash truck. The Air Force added the latter. None of those are shown in the aerial view included in the images below, however. Unsure if the station's in service just yet. Click to enlarge:
